Alphablocks

Alphablocks is a British children's educational television program that attempts to teach children how to spell with the use of animated blocks representing each letter. In addition to the television show Alphablocks also has a fabulous site full of videos and activities to help young students learn their letters and sounds.  
Here is a description from the Alphablocks website:
Alphablocks is a series of adventures that invite you and your child to have fun with words.
The Alphablocks are twenty-six living letters who fall out of the sky onto an empty, white world and discover that if they hold hands and make a word, it comes to life. They learn as they go along and they're always ready to have a go, help each other out and make their own entertainment.
Alphablocks is aimed at four-to-six-year-olds who are learning to read. Its simple purpose is to entertain, while showing that wordplay can be a lot of fun. It is based on best-practice phonics teaching and it can help young children develop engagement and confidence with reading and making words.
Every episode is different: there are songs, stories and games. The CBeebies Alphablocks website will feature all twenty-six episodes, with games that enable children to join in and make words to help the Alphablocks in their adventures.
